Been down at the brewery all day with Grace and Sharon together with Eoin, Malcolm and the ever eloquent and insightful Anna. Our focus up until this point has really been on the story, characters and our working practice so it was massively exciting to see the first scene played out. I got a wry smile at my reaction out of Sharon who is obviously use to the moment her writing comes to life. For me having been immersed in this and been engrossed in the script Sharon is writing I was thrilled to see Eoin and Malcolm do a sterling job. Really got the hairs on the back of my neck standing up.
It was also interesting to have some questions fired at us as well. It's the first time I have had to take stock of everything. Hopefully I made some sense, although as always you come away thinking of all the things you should have said.
My order of Synsepalum dulcificum or miracle fruite had also arrived so we got a chance to try that out on everyone. I did have to convince folk that in no way was this a psychoactive or illegal substance. You had all the usual "oooo it't not working, I haven't taken enough....." but then it started working. I haven't enjoyed a raw lime like that before.
I had also got the Kinect and a point cloud effect up and running which I saw as potentially being used as mirror reflection. It's only early days but was still nice to get people playing with a bit of tech.
